MAY I have the pleasure of wishing you all a Happy New Month and MAY it be a blessed month to us all.
Welcome to a new edition of the “Alumni of the week” series.
Did you miss the previous edition? Click below and catch up.
In this edition, we will be featuring a passionate shoemaker, Abdulazeez Qazeem, one of our batch B student of the Aba Mastering Footwear Program.
Qazeem made no delay in pursuing his passion for shoemaking. Just as he was rounding up his slippers making course, he came across the Aba Mastering Footwear Training Program.
It was like an ‘All-in-one’ package for him and an upgrade to his expectations.
Let’s hear from him as he shares his experience at The Academy.
Hello Qazeem, please introduce yourself.
Hi, My name is Abdulazeez Qazeem. It’s an honour to be here.
How did you hear about the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I got to know about the training program on Facebook.
What motivated you to sign up for the Aba Mastering Footwear Program?
I’ve always had passion for shoemaking. I even enrolled in a course to learn slippers and sandals making after my youth service.
The Aba Mastering Footwear program came at the time I just finished my slippers making course, I felt it’s definitely what I needed to up my game in the shoemaking proper, learning shoe designs like Oxford, derby, loafers and so on.
And how will you sum up your experience during the training?
I had an awesome experience at The Academy.
The facilitators, the instructors, the TFA Team, my colleagues and the teaching environment was top-notch.
Getting to learn how to make different shoes like Oxford, loafers, and even female flat shoes was an awesome experience.
I’m glad and grateful that I signed up for the training program.
Interesting, what’s next for you?
The next thing is to put all I’ve learnt here into practice.
I intend making 24_feet become a brand to reckon with in the shoemaking industry.
So what advice do you have for young people?
My advice to young people is to never quit. The future is always brighter, be focused and make the most out of it.
